Strain Gauge Transmitter (v7)

WT127

DESCRIPTION

The WT127 is a 4-wire transmitter designed for inputs from any type of full bridge strain gauge such as loadcells or piezoresistive devices (pressure sensor). This transmitter combines an accurate excitation power supply and a millivolt pre-amplifier in one unit. Excitation voltage is front adjustable and will drive up to 4 loadcells (350Ω) in parallel at 10Vdc. The most common input mV-ranges are user selectable on the amplifier card by coding plugs. Final calibration is trimmed using the front accessible "OFFS" and “SPAN” 15-turn trim adjustments. The "OFFS" adjustment is used for fine tare trim and is non-interacting with the span adjustment if coarse tare is set correctly (tare = zero setting). The "OFFS" potentiometer can be wired out of the housing on request to provide remote tare adjustment. Front adjustments cover typically ±20% of range. Output signal is indicated by the green LED on front, which gives a clear indication of module function. Three user selectable response times including a fast 5mS are available. Response times slower than 500mS are optional. Input to output isolation is also available. RF and power transient protection is standard as it is with all APCS modules. Various power supply choices are available varying from 240Vac down to 8Vdc, all provide power isolation.

Calibration Procedure

For units input codes 08 and 09 (e.g. WT127-108120) use drawing CP12762 (superseded by 10/11). For units input codes 10, 11, 12 and 13 (e.g. WT127-110120) use drawing CP12761.

Selection Guide Examples

Range = Actual_Load Capacity

× Sensitivity × Excitation

1. Load cell of 1000 kg capacity, with 2mV/V sensitivity. Set up using 10Vdc excitation. Then if the “actual load” is 500 kg max., then

Range = 500 kg kg × 2 mV/V × 10 V = 10 mV .

1000

2. If 1000 kg load cell has a 200 kg tare (tare = empty tank for example), with a 800 kg live load, then tare off the 200 kg and

Range = 800 kg kg × 2 mV/V × 10 = 16 mV .

1000

Note: Standard tare adjustment is 100% of range. eg. for 500 kg tare with 1000 kg load cell tare = 500 kg = range.

500 kg tare with 1000 kg load cell tare = 500 kg = range. In the
